If we take the position of a skeptic with respect to "Extraterrestrial" phenomena and look at it from a very strict consideration in terms of a 1- 2- 3 maturational development sequence taking place with human consciousness:


It has been quite common during the "UFO era" for 1 "to" 3 people to be abducted by 1 "to" [two] 3 aliens or they saw 1 "to" [two] 3 UFO's (sometimes referred to as 3 lights in a triangle formation). These examples, as well as other UFO/Alien and Crop Circle phenomena can be interpreted as a left hemisphere's analytical perspective to make some logical sense of the right hemisphere's imagery type of perception. We can offer the idea that the overall idea of the UFO/ Alien/Crop circle (etc.) phenomena, are outwardly projected attempts by the developing human brain to construct a representational image of an individual's internally occurring transitional psycho-maturational development from a 2 to a 3-patterned (consciousness) development/focus with respect to and in context with their particular gender, culture, race, economic status, environment, education level, maturity, etc...


The right hemisphere is attempting (with the "tools"/attributes that are specific to its processing ability,) to pictorially "understand" the-individualized 3-patterned left hemispheric metamorphosis that for some, can be quite painful, distressing, or lead them to falsely consider-they are going insane. All the pain, distress, and (false) claims of feeling oneself going insane (from divulging or keeping to oneself the variety of images made available to consciousness through the use of metaphor, imagery, and "mirage"- like allusions,) are because humanity does not yet appreciate the processes of evolutionary development with respect to a 1~ 2~ 3 maturational-developing consciousness.


(Much less does humanity as a whole appreciate that the 1~ 2~ 3 maturational development sequence of consciousness is related to racial definitions expressed in our hominid development.) Instead, their unwarranted fears attempt to suppress their individualized psycho-maturational evolution by way of drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, religion, etc . . . (It has been said, whether true or not, that Karl Marx said Religion is the opiate of the Masses.)




3 great pyramids on the Giza Plateau are said to represent the 3 bright stars of Orion's belt.

Pyramids at Giza

The pyramids on the Giza Plateau near Cairo. At far right is the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops), in the middle and closer is the pyramid of Khafre (Chephren), and on left is the smallest of the three major Giza pyramids - that of Menkaure (Mycerinus). Three small subsidiary pyramids are at the extreme left. (They are sometimes referred to as architectural models used in planning the larger pyramids.) The photograph is a montage by Mark Rigby taken from a rocky outcrop to the southeast.

3 possible types of pyramids (by restricting ourselves to regular polygons for faces):


  1. Triangle-based tetrahedron.
  2. Square pyramid.
  3. Pentagonal pyramid.

  • 3 stars in the Orion constellation (Alnitak ~ Saiph ~ Rigel) were arranged by the gods as a triangular hearth, enclosing the smoke of the fire creation...the nebula, according to ancient Mayan belief.

  • ***The Hyades is a V-shaped cluster of stars in the head of the constellation Taurus held by the Ancients to indicate rainy weather when they rise with the Sun.

  • 3 hour window: Nocturnal migratory bird flights occur between 10 PM and 1 AM.


Interplanetary dust is composed of micrometeoric debris scattered by comets, and grandular powder from asteroid and meteoroid collisions. The inter-planetary dust is best observed in the Northern Hemisphere in the form of zodiacal light - seen in the west after sundown in the early spring, and in the east just before sunrise in the late fall. The faint, TRIANGULAR band of light is caused by the reflection from dust and small particles along the plane of the planets' orbits (or the plane of the ecliptic).


3 classic wooden sailboats 1n July 1978, are said to have experienced what was called the Michigan Triangle but has also been referred to as the Great Lakes Triangle.

3 examples of an Extraterrestrial/Spaceship and Petroglyph connection:
Petroglyph Extraterrestrial

This being is very similar in appearance to Kul Ta Kahn who is the Deity in the fabled city of Chichen Itza in Mexico, renowned for it's Mayan Pyramids. He is often depicted in an Aero Ship. Also, he is often seen at the controls of his triangular ship.

Petroglyh Star Beings

Star Beings are depicted here emerging from triangular shaped ships.

Petroglyph spaceship

We see here a petroglyph of a triangular shaped ship. We can clearly see the retro flares representing the ship¹s propulsion and movement. The figure inside the ship represents the Star Beings. Below the ship, we see the earth people. To the left of the ship we see the representation of the four peoples as is found in the Hopi petroglyphs of Arizona.

3 subcategories of fatal spontaneous human combustion:


  1. Classic Burnings
  2. Witnessed Combustions
  3. Selective Burnings

3 subcategories of non-fatal spontaneous human combustion:


  1. Mysterious Flames
  2. Mysterious Burns
  3. Mysterious Smoke

3rd major category of spontaneous human combustion could be considered as a distinct combination/mixture/relationship of subtype occurrences within the major category selections. In other words, a separate type of entity/phenomena/circumstance that is unique to certain individuals in certain contexts at certain times. This view also permits the realization that spontaneous human combustion may be a phenomena of development (that has its own specific type of growth stages) with respect to a 1~ 2~ 3 maturational development sequence occurring with human physiology.


3 main features of the publicly recognized "Classic Burnings" or "Bedroom Burnings,"
(though the article I got the information from considers the following references as representing 5 main features):


  1. Ash-Specific Burning- The victim's body and clothing is mostly reduced to ash.
  2. Inward-Specific Burning- Only objects immediately associated with the body have burned. Small portions of the body (an arm, a foot, maybe the head) remain unburned. The fire never spread away from the body. Small portions of the body (an arm, a foot, maybe the head) remain unburned.
  3. Outward-Specific Burning- Greasy soot deposit covers the ceiling and walls, usually stopping 3 to 4 feet above the floor. Objects above this three to four foot line show signs of heat damage (melted candles, cracked mirrors, etc.); objects below this line show no damage.

3 basic types of hauntings:


  1. Like a video playback of an historic or tragic event. This is called a residual haunting.
  2. An interactive spirit that manifests in many ways. You may see a full or partial bodied apparition. More frequently than that, you may here voices, music, footsteps, etc. You may also smell odors which sources cannot be found (i.e. pipe tobacco when no one smokes). You may also see orbs, mists and other light effects. You may feel touches, cold spots, and other light physical contact.
  3. They rarely interact with the living. They are non human spirits, commonly known as demons and devils.

3 Types of Vampyres:


  1. Predator- A hunter who controls others through physical victimization.
  2. Psychic- A hunter who controls others through mental victimization. (Subduing the thought processes of individuals by staring into their eyes and creating a sort of hypnotic state.)
  3. Symbiotic- A sort of companion hunter who controls others by a quid pro quo method of giving one's life blood in exchange for another's life blood.

  1. Werewolves
  2. Vampires
  3. Zombies,

3 ways to become a morph, (A were-creature (human being) that can draw power from a totem animal:


  1. Heredity- Most morphs are born that way. They are born into a family or clan of shape-shifters. The animal species stays the same within a family.
  2. Magick- Sometimes a witch or wizard can become a morph through the use of magick. These morphs, like all morphs, can use magick in morph form, but only by using spells, charms, or talismans.
  3. Curse- Sometimes a human can be cursed into being a morph for vicious crimes against humanity, nature, or even themselves. This is rare and is usually not induced by any witch or magician, but by nature itself.

3 main types of shape shifters:


  1. Lycanthropes- also known as werewolves, are people who have the ability to shift into their wolf phenotype. They can become a full-fledged four-legged wolf, or a werewolf.
  2. Therianthropes- Therianthropy covers all animal forms, including wolves, so a lycanthrope can be considered a therianthrope. However, since lycanthropy specifically deals with wolves, therianthropes are generally thought of as people who transform themselves into other animal forms. Therianthropes include weretigers, werefoxes, werebears, etc., and polymorphs.
  3. Polymorph- The difference between a polymorph and the other two types of shifters is that polymorphs not only have many phenotypes, but they can appear as a mixed hybrid of all their phenotypes combined into one. An example of a polymorph would be a person who could shift into a creature that is part human, tiger, and eagle, a weretiger with wings perhaps.

Human figures holding atlatls

Three locations of rock art are know depicting atlatls:


  1. In West Texas, along the lower Pecos River there can be found several sites depicting atlatls.
  2. Two rock art sites are recorded in the San Juan River drainage of southeastern Utah. In both of these sites the atlatls depicted do not show weights attached to the weapon.
  3. The third and by far most prolific collection of rock art showing atlatls is in the desert ranges of southeastern California and Southern Nevada.

3 figures and several atlatls

The three patterned body anthropomorphs shown appear to be holding atlatls and darts. Although these images post date the introduction of the bow and arrow by many hundreds, perhaps thousands of years, some theorize that the atlatl was kept alive in the culture in a symbolic form. The rock art record supports this, as other instances of atlatl images can be found in later post bow and arrow images. The images of the atlatls by themselves show the complex variety of styles and combinations of finger grips, hooks and weights that have been used or at least illustrated during the 3000 year old rock art record by the ancient peoples of the area. The images of the hunters also reflect the changes in rock art styles from the simple early drawings to the later more detailed images including depictions of complex headdresses in the later part of these atlatl hunters history.

Three alternate views of every sculpture to be cataloged would normally be taken by a photographer, if one was to document or archive a work of art (for a museum or gallery). So, just as you would initially take a "head-on" view of a bifurcated mask, you would also take a 3/4 view, of the left and right side. Ultimately, NASA has provided us with such a bracketed set of images of the "Face".


3 pictures of the Mars face

  1. The 1976 Viking image, although unevenly illuminated, is a great over head shot. This image also provides conformation of feature placement for the newer images.
  2. The 1998 image is actually a beautiful image of the "humanoid" side of the "Face", while the "feline" side (which still bares a remarkable resemblance to a lion) is dark, narrow, and foreshortened.
  3. The recent 2001 shot of the face has now given us just the opposite situation. The new image captures the feline side perfectly while the "humanoid" side is "off kilter" and because of it's highly reflective presentation, it lacks detail.

3 major types of spirit activity recognized by the the UK Ghost Watch:


  1. Spirits- A spirit is an entity on the lowest energy level and therefore unable to materialize. It usually makes itself known by creating a cold spot or a cool breeze regardless of the general overall temperature.
  2. Ghost or Apparition- The energy of a deceased person, we believe, remains the same after death, (but is higher than a spirit's energy level.) For example, if an individual was kind and gentle when alive, the energy will remain so and, accordingly, if unkind an grumpy the same will apply.
  3. Entity or Poltergeist- This type of spirit, commonly known as the poltergeist, has the highest level of energy and literally feeds on a host's energy and zaps away. This type of manifestation is usually very intense, noisy, evil and destructive. It can weaken its host and try to possess them. It is usually accompanied by an extremely unpleasant smell, often like rotting flesh, vegetables or a sewer type of smell.

Question:How do you define ghost phenomena?... Semantics can be a problem. I tend to classify such things in three categories.


  1. Elementals- These are the recordings, impressions or imprints left from a life. They do not possess a consciousness, per se. These 'elementals' fade with time. It might take a week or ten thousand years but the energy will dissipate and the manifestation will disappear.
  2. Active- This is usually a poltergeist phenomena.... coming from inside of a person and effecting the environment outside of them. The individual is most often not aware that they are causing the disturbance. Teen age girls entering puberty .... good candidates for this sort of thing.
  3. Actual- This would be an outside, conscious entity from another plane of existence. In most cases they look for energy, i.e., Ouija boards, seances, etc. They feed on human emotion. I'm sure there are hundreds of classifications within this group; semantical.... One could say that all three types are 'ghosts'. I tend to see the elemental forms as ghosts.

3 types of ghosts:


  1. First, the most familiar kind: the sad ones, the wispy ones. They seem to be working out some unfinished earthly business, or suffering some purgatorial purification until released from their earthly business. These ghosts would seem to be the ones who just barely made it to Purgatory, who feel little or no joy yet and who need to learn many painful lessons about their past life on earth.
  2. Second, there are malicious and deceptive spirits - and since they are deceptive, they hardly ever appear malicious. These are probably the ones who respond to conjurings at seances. They probably come from Hell. Even the chance of that happening should be sufficient to terrify away all temptations to necromancy.
  3. Third, there are bright, happy spirits of dead friends and family, especially spouses, who appear unbidden, at God's will, not ours, with messages of hope and love. They seem to come from Heaven. Unlike the purgatorial ghosts who come back primarily for their own sakes, these bright spirits come back for the sake of us the living, to tell us all is well.

3 types of unicorns: Arabian ~ Oriental ~ European


3 types of "satanic" or ritual activities that actually do exist:


  1. Harmless organized religions led by flamboyant characters such as Anton La Vey, who heads the Church of Satan.
  2. Teenagers who, as part of societal rebellion, dabble in the occult, draw pentagrams, and perhaps sacrifice a stray cat.
  3. Aberrant psychopaths who act out the myths they read about or see in movies, such as the 1989 Matamoros murders.

***As for the question of "false memories," "massive repression" in which YEARS of traumatic abuse were completely forgotten and then recalled, probably does not occur. (Victims of Memory, p. 187,-Mark Pendergrast).

3 types of phantom hitchhikers:


  1. One that goes into the car after stopping the driver. These are just waiting by the side of the road, usually of the opposite sex.
  2. One that gets hit or nearly missed by driver then no body is found. This kind appears out of nowhere in the middle of the road and gets hit by the car.
  3. One that stops the driver where accidents or murders have happened, or if there is a broken road. This kind probably got injured in an accident and is now repeating itself as an apparition. Or it could be it died due to the bad road and its apparition is warning others.
